Perseus and the Gorgon's Head by Geoff Bamber
RolesMinimum Male roles = 5. Minimum Female roles = 3. Minimum total with doubling = 9. Minimum total without doubling = 24. No chorus. Twenty-three speaking roles plus non-speaking builders.

StyleOne-act comedy play for kids. (One-act in length, four acts in structure.) A retelling of Greek myth. No set requirements.
SynopsisDanae and her son Perseus are thrown out of Argos. (The play doesn't say where they do their shopping after that.) They are washed-up on the island of Seriphos, where King Polydectes has designs on Danae. To get rid of Perseus, Polydectes sends him on a quest to bring back the head of the Gorgon Medusa. With help from unlikely quarters (gods, the Delphic Oracle, that sort of thing), Perseus succeeds. Pausing only to rescue the beautiful Andromeda, he returns to Seriphos and fulfils his destiny with a javelin.

Run TimeAround 45 minutes. [Estimated!]

StyleHistorical comedy for kids. Structurally in four acts, but of one-act length. No specific set requirements. Simple props.
SynopsisWith the Wars of the Roses in full swing, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, finds himself on the right side when the House of York take the throne. Richard harbours an ambition to become King. Unfortunately his older brothers and his own nephews stand in his way. For a resourceful fellow with no principles this does not present a problem. Dark deeds inevitably ensue. Temporary success is achieved but a happy ending for the story of one of history's favourite villains (*) seems increasingly unlikely.
* This is only because this bit of history was written by the Tudors. (To the victor, the spoilers.)
